TOURNAMENT ELIGIBILITYAll players (new and returning) must have:
Juniors (under 21) must check in with Western BCA Tournament Officials/Casino Security and wear a wrist band at all times while in the tournament rooms. They may not loiter in the bar/gambling areas.
Seniors must be 60 years of age by the date of their first match in any senior event.
SPORTSMANSHIPDisrespectful, disruptive and unsportsmanlike conduct directed towards any player, tournament staff person/official (includng but not limitied to Tournament Directors, Podium/Payouts/PR staff, Referees, Bad Boys Staff) and/or host personnel (Chinook Winds employees) will not be tolerated and appropriate action will be taken immediately. Should such behavior occur during the course of a match, play may be suspended until a resolution commensurate with the situation is reached. If this is not possible, penalties may be assessed and play will continue. Offenders may or may not be warned and, in extreme situations, they may be removed from the tournament and disqualified from all events with no refund of entry fees and forfeiture of any winnings due or already paid. Any rulings by tournament officials will be made with fairness and impartiality towards all involved and will be reviewed at the conclusion of the tournament. It is everyone's desire that the outcome of any match be decided by the play on the table, not the questionable attitude or behavior of the players involved. Sportsmanship violations may result in probation or suspension of a player's eligibility into future Western BCA Tournaments for an indeterminate period of time depending on the severity of the violation.
